See below for DMEP calendar of music classes for 2017/18.

As we surge through 2018, many of our classes are full but we still have the occasional gaps. In Letterkenny, most of these are before 4pm and after 8pm. Elsewhere there are ‘prime time’ slots in some instruments.

In all we have almost 500 people in music classes – strings, woodwind, piano, percussion, singing. Most of these are 1 – to – 1. And we have around 350 in our 11 performing groups, including five choirs. That’s a lot of music happening in this corner. Great!

Though we mainly deal with young people, we’re always on the look-out for adults, particularly for our adult performing groups, the Errigal Singers with Margaret McAteer and our back-to-music group Mind Your Quavers with Irene Donnelly-Tinney and Seamus McGuire.
